Recent guest reviews

The hotel needs some updating and remodeling. The pictures look nothing like the hotel.

Old decor and carpet. AC smelled moldy. Shower was broken and sprayed all over the walls. Just a place to sleep for cheap. Fitness center opens at 8 which is too late. Tried to pay with gift card and one lady kept nodding her head no only for the others to try it and it worked fine. I wouldn't go back again. I'll pay more or use Air BNB.

This hotel is ok for a one night stay and no more. The room had a weird odor that hit us as soon as we opened the door! Aside from that the room is tiny, the TVs are old and small, the bathroom had horrible water pressure in the shower, and the AC barely worked! If your looking for a room with access to the pool and your not in the main part of the hotel, it's a long trek to the pool. Not sure if the hotel only has one pool but when we check in there was no mention of a second pool. Our room was 418 and as far as I could tell the 300s and 400s are extremely far from the pool, luckily we were tired and didn't want to use the pool. Only one person in our group ate at the hotel restaurant for breakfast and he said it was not amazing but not horrible, so just average. The only positive is the location of this hotel!

I really liked my stay at the hotel. The Hotel restaurant was excellent and the staff were so friendly. It is very close to the main attractions such as Balboa park, Old town, etc.

I stay here soley due to 2 outdoor jacuzzis, one beautiful, under a dozen 40 foot palm trees, open from 8am - 2am daily

Was a great value, especially for the money. To have a restaurant, meeting room, pool, and hot tub for the rate I was charged relative to the properties in the area, I'm delighted. I didn't ask or use for much by way of the amenities, but desk staff was friendly greeting me, giving me change, wake-up calls, etc.

A short distance to the principals San Diego attractions.

Rooms need upgrading where you could water flushing and running from adjacent rooms. Also noisy guests. BW needs to review their policy re: the $75 charge for incedentals that are charged then credited. No need for such a policy that are not initiated at any other major hotel chains

It was pleasant stay , hotel cir area is very well located , right at the center ,eveything in San Diego is max 50 min away .Excellent hotel for the price and value

The hotel is nice but dated. The staff at the front desk was helpful and responsive. We experienced mechanical issues with the heater/AC unit mounted beneath the window - twice. Each time, maintenance was called and they swapped out the unit completely! Unfortunately, they replace it with another old unit so a different problem appears. So we used 3 heater/AC units during a 4 night stay. But I have to give them credit for responsiveness. Besides the heater/AC unit, the room was well maintained and clean. The maids were very polite.

For the price you are paying, it is a good hotel. It felt more of a 2 or 2.5 hotel more than a 3.

good hotel- only needed to sleep in for the weekend.

Staff were very friendly & helpful. Room was clean, bed was fairly comfortable. On site restaurant was nice.

The lack of microwave in the room was a big deal for me, beside that, it was ok

Very disappointed with the Seven seas Café. After a cold club sandwich and an under cooked waffle I decided to go elsewhere!

The stay was nice. Everything was clean and the staff were friendly but when we went to the cafe, we left after ordering. We ordered 2 sandwiches and were waiting over 30min and we told them we were leaving

Hotel was 15 minutes from Airport, Old Town San Diego, Mission Beach and 20-25 minutes from Zoo, La Jolla Beach, Pacific Beach, & Coronado Beach. Also 5-10 minutes to Fashion Valley Mall. Two blocks from a liquor store. It was super convenient to catch an uber to and from places. The room was clean but had lots of gnats and the fan in the bathroom was really loud. Also every morning around 7am you can hear doors slamming, people walking, and around 9am you can hear cleaning staff talking very loudly to each other about what rooms to clean. Noisy but for the price worth it.

Seven Seas has easy access to freeways in San Diego, but was being repainted at the the time of my stay. My room was "paint ready" which surprised me when i arrived. If the front desk staff had mentioned this i would have known what to expect. Instead I called when i arrived at my reserved room, surprised and wondering asking why i was placed in this room. The staff member asked if the room was not suitable. The room was fine, but the windows were covered with plastic, the room number was covered, peephole was plugged. I stayed, but next morning the door handle was covered along with my "Do not disturb" sign. It seems to me it would be better to alert guests.prior to arriving at the room. The next day a note was put under our door discussing the painting.i like to stay at hotels in Hotel Circle as it has easy access to freeways and shopping facilities.

No, did not clean room, loud noise and construction.

We heard every word sad in the rooms on both sides of ours. Also, the bed was super hard and the room was tiny. My only positive comment is that they allowed Orbitz to give a refund for the next 2 nights so we could go somewhere else.
